    When I first installed Tiger all those months ago, one thing I noticed is that desktop icons began to appear behind the Dock. This makes it hard to read their names or drag them with the mouse. I seemed to remember icons never appearing behind the Dock in Panther, instead moving up to the next column at the top of the desktop.

    Is there a way to stop icons from appearing behind the Dock in Tiger? It's ugly and frustrating. I hoped they would change this behavior in 10.4.3, but they didn't.

    Just hide your dock and then you should see them perfectly.

    I had this problem too but 10.4.3 does appear to have fixed it for me. I've not had the problem since 10.4.3 and I just ran a test creating a bunch of files on the desktop with textedit and they flowed correctly to the next column.
